This week's question: Scientists have discovered a rare and remarkably sedentary species of olm — a cave-dwelling salamander — that can live into its hundreds and typically moves less than 32 feet a decade; one stayed in the same spot for seven years. Please come up with the title of a self-help book touting the health benefits of taking life as slow as an olm.
